Full and partial dentures are a time-tested method for replacing missing teeth, and they have helped millions of people regain chewing function and restore a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, since dentures are prosthetics that sit on top of your gums and rely on suction for stability, they tend to be uncomfortable and shift and move unexpectedly.
Fortunately, today we have the option of stabilizing dentures with state-of-the-art dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium replacement root that Dr. Jeffrey Schultz places surgically in your jaw and left to heal over several months. As it heals, it fuses with surrounding bone and tissue and becomes part of your dental structure.
When we use them to stabilize dentures, Dr. Jeffrey Schultz places several implants at strategic points along your jaw. After the implants heal, your new denture is customized to attach securely to the implants. Since your denture gains stability from the implants, it won’t shift or move and can only be removed by Dr. Schultz.
Dr. Schultz is highly trained and experienced in dental implant placement, so you have the comfort of knowing that he will handle the entire process from start to finish here in our comfortable Houston, TX dental office.
